365 Cards

Lately I've been wondering if it's "ever" going to get warm in Chicago again. The weather has been rather cold and rainy creating many stuffy noses within my family.
What started with one child ended up almost 3 weeks later with everyone having shared the lovely flu bug.

Now that I'm the last to entertain this pesky bug I'm really hoping warm weather is right around the corner so we can open the windows and air everything out. :)

Getting back to my papercrafts...

I joined 365 cards as a guest designer and my date finally arrived (yeah) :)
My challenge was to create a card using some kind of fruit. While I do have a few fruit stamps, I've got to admit I've only used them once so this truly was a challenge for me. I created my card using the peaches stamp from Lockhart stamps. I colored them using a super soft water soluable pencils from Caran D'Ache. These pencils are totally unlike any watercolor pencils in the market, I love the way you can blend colors flawlessly. I kept my layers simple with Bazzill textured cardstock and kept it clean by adding some additional texture using my Scor-it.
